|How do you stop violent crime and terrorism? What about increasing rates of illiteracy, drug and sexual abuse, homelessness and suicide? |
What could possibly drive insane terrorists to kill thousands of people in New York and Washington, D.C., by flying planes into buildings?
For governments, the initial societal fix was to spend millions on "experts” who claimed to have the answers to these problems. But when the problems worsened, the experts said they needed billions, not millions. And when the problems continued to worsen, the experts said they needed more billions.
Today, according to these experts, we are facing a truly alarming epidemic that is going to strike one out of every two people – half the population. It is, they say, the cause of society’s problems. And it is going to cost even more billions to resolve.
But wait a minute. This epidemic has apparently been escalating since day one. After World War II, these same experts estimated the epidemic affected only one in 10; less than a decade later, they stated that one out of every three people were suffering; and today, they state that every other person is going to suffer the consequences of it. Why is it then, that literally billions of dollars in government funding for research have failed to halt the epidemic? It just keeps rolling remorselessly along, spreading further and wider, in spite of the money, in spite of the research.
Could it be that these estimates aren’t true? Could it be that they represent nothing less than a camouflaged funding push to not only scare the government into keeping its faucet open, but to open it even wider? It is a possibility worth examining. We examine this and other issues in the following articles.
The epidemic so alarmingly reported on is mental illness.

An Anatomy Of Today's Terrorism
submitted by Dr. Gary Farr 10/1/2001
In the wake of the horrific recent terrorist attacks in the United States, there are many questions that remain unanswered. However, there is one unnerving question that is on everyone's mind.
"What sort of human being can be so cold-heartedly cruel and violently destructive of others and self, methodically planning and executing mass murder and suicide, with no apparent sense of the sheer inhumanity of their plan?" While the words may vary, the essential question remains the same. Put more simply, "What sort of person is capable of such evil?"

submitted by Dr. Gary Farr 10/17/2002

Nutritional Support for Mental Health
submitted by Dr. Gary Farr 8/4/2002
In the author's opinion, the first place to start with any mental health condition is to check the person's nutritional status. People who have "mental problems" are almost, without exception suffering nutritionally. And, while food supplements are not the entire treatment needed, they are the simplest to implement while a person is figuring out their life.
